BULLETIN NOTES

FEASTS OF THE WEEK

Tuesday 4: St John Vianney, 1786 – 1859. He had to contend with poverty, milarity service and his own intellecutal shortcomings in order to become a priest. In 1817, he was sent to care for the people of Ars, a small obscure French village. The marvellous gift of the unlearned priest for seeing into the depths of the soul the world to Ars. From 1830 on, the curé averaged twelve to sixteen hours a day in the confessional.

Patron of priests.

Wednesday 5: The Dedication of the Basilica of St Mary Major

The basilica was built by Pope Sixtus lll after the Council of Ephesus (431). lt is the first church in the West named in honour of the Mother of God.

Thursday 6: The Transfuguration of the Lord. The Cross requires the exodus of Jesus, his death, Resurrection and glorification. The disciples have to realise that he must depart, just as they are now prepared for his going up to Jerusalem to die.

Friday 7: Saints Sixtus II, pope, and Companions, martyrs

Saturday 8: St Dominic, priest, 117O - 1221, a Spaniard who founded the Order of Preachers (Dominicans)
